October MODCOM meeting >> ideas?

Postby nichols » Fri Sep 22, 2006 11:17 am

I am trying to pull together a location for the October meeting of the Los Angeles Conservancy Modern Committee and I'm coming up a little dry.

We've done Forest Lawn and the casket factory... anybody else want to offer up a suggestion?

25-40 people, Oct. 16 7-9 PM
Free, architecturally stimulating, unusual or Halloween-y
Santa Monica to Pasadena...

Thanks

The Meyer and Holler Pierce Brothers on Washington? Not MCM, but a historic-cultural landmark. And for sale, so we wouldn't be bothering any of the nice morticians at work. Plenty of parking, too.

Hmm.. Torrance. Is that gonna go over with you folks on here that are able to join us for meetings? 20 miles from downtown.. Well, that's about the same as Arcadia... probably the furthest afield we've ever held a meeting.

Hi,

Torrance seems a tad far from center. Also, the 405 is a true nightmare that time of day. Even from Santa Monica, you're talking over an hour to Torrance. From my side of town or the valley, you'd have to leave before 5 to make it by 6:30.

There's an incredibly cool round MCM church in Glendale on Chevy Chase drive (I could drive by and get the name). I spoke to the pastor, and she was extremely open not only to our having a modcom meeting there, but to nominating the building for local listing.

That's the second "too far" I've heard today.. Hmm...
Well, the fine folks at CIA have said they might host us
http://www.ciabnormalarts.com/
Could y'all get into that?

So no-one liked my mortuary idea? Well FINE. I'll just have to buy it and hold my own shindig there!

Nathan, I adored your mortuary idea and second the motion, but Abnormal Arts is also ringing my bell for the Oct meeting.

As for the Alpine Village in Torrance, fugitaboutit. Try going to Lowenbrau Keller instead.

I am watching this exchange with bemusement.

Laura: The day ModCom meets in a church is the day this nice Jewish girl resigns. Please note that just today, I posted a plug for my MCM synogogue:

http://www.lottaliving.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=7539

Second, Nathan, far be it from me to stop you from buying your own mortuary, but I don't believe your fine suggestion for a meeting place has been ruled out. Calm down, everyone, altho clearly the ModCom Halloween venue is second only as a hysteria subject to the ModCom "holiday" (i.e., Chanukah) party.

There's a bevy of MCM mortuaries in this burg...Angelus on Crenshaw is Paul Williams...but don't know if open mortuaries dig (no pun intended) what might confilct with a service. Nor may they be hip to the confluence with "spooky Halloweeny." In any event, I could also go for the ol' Abnormal Arts.

And as well, who doesn't like a little hysteria now and then? I for one am fueled by it, but that's just me.

Too bad Tishri isn't later in the year, 'cuz then we could meet in a church and then go atone for it! I can perform the Kol Nidre on the Theremin...

You here it may be closing?! Why didn't you call me immediately? That means they're going to rip out all the groovy mortuary accoutrements...just as they'll do to the Pierce Bros. Seems there's a non-competition clause in the neighborhood and whoever buys Pierce can't reopen it as a mortuary. Which breaks my little heart in two.

The only number I can give you for Pierce is the realtor's # on the sign out front, so I'll jot that down when I motor past it today.

I take it the modernist playground that is Rose Hills Whittier is to far afield...

Alpine Village only has a room for 100 and requires 25 people to purchase dinner...

Hummer, what does MWD mean?
"MWD has over 78 gardens - one might work out. "
the only thing which sticks in my mind is "methods of wack destruction"....
